‘A little firecracker’
Aji Charapita is an unique chilli pepper from Peru. We have grown this variety for 4 years now, and we are impressed with the heat level of this little firecracker.
It grows well in a pot to about 70 cm in height and is nearly as wide. The Aji Charapita is bushy, easy to grow and is a great producing chilli pepper. It keeps on producing tiny little pods all season long.
The pods are about 0.5 cm and don’t let the size deceive, because they pack a punch. First the pods have a light green colour and end up a warm yellow.
They provide a nice fiery heat to any dish and would be great sprinkled over pizza’s or add a handful in a Chicken Korma Curry and get small chilli explosions in your mouth. Even a spicy chilli powder would be great with this chilli.
What is surprising about this chilli is the flavour of the pods and the heat level. Instant chinense flavour with citrus undertones, they are delicious.
Please note: Limited stock and only 8-10 chilli seeds per pack as each pod only contains 2-3 seeds.
Pods size: 0.5 cm.
Flavour: Instant chinense flavour with citrus undertones
Heat level: Explosive heat level. Hot.
